Replacing the cramped conditions of the small studio room in the basement of the School’s Silk Street building, the new Studio Theatre provides a flexible performance space to complement the School’s other two theatres.
In contrast to the larger main Theatre at Milton Court, it gives actors experience of performing in an intimate, adaptable space (12.5m by 18.7m) before an audience of up to 128 people seated in various formats. It emulates the many small, adaptable spaces our actors will work in professionally outside the big playhouses.
Furthermore, our theatre technicians learn to accommodate the demands of contemporary theatrical performances, using the small technical teams and tighter budgets that they will encounter in spaces such as those found in London’s off-West End venues.
The Studio Theatre provides:
- perimeter technical gallery and a tension-wire grid
- state-of-the-art lighting and sound facilities
- seating for several different performance configurations
- assisted-listening system
- high-quality dressing room facilities
